The new additions were supplied by Euro Commercials in Swansea and will enable Glass Systems to supply their ever increasing customer base with greater efficiency.


Managing Director Alan Atkinson comments: “Fabricators and installers often work to very tight deadlines and the new vehicles mean we can continue to offer our customers a fast and efficient turnaround. We have experienced an increase in volume over the last 18 months, with production growing from 28,000 units per week to 36,000 units. These latest two lorries mean we have increased the fleet by seven new vehicles in the same period,  and it gives our logistics department the tools they need to supply this increased demand.”
